CCD PreK-8th Grade Faith Formation

 "Big" News is Coming!

CCD  2022-2023

We are excited about this upcoming 2022-2023 catechetical (CCD) year in our parish! This is an opportunity for us to get to know and live the Catholic faith with our families, friends, and parish community. Also, it is a time when we meet Fr. Peter, Deacon Basco and the catechists who will help to discover the truth about God, His teachings and unconditional love. Over the summer months, the catechists and the Cathedral staff have reviewed and made changes to the activities and curriculum to bring the Catholic faith and spiritual experience of God closer to the parents and children. This also includes preparation for First Holy Communion and Confirmation. This year, the catechists’ mission is focused on collaborating and assisting parents in forming a new generation of young Catholics who know and love Jesus Christ and live the Catholic faith as His disciples in the community of the Catholic Church. 

Our first gathering is September 11 with a Sunday Brunch and Fellowship Breakfast at 9:00am, followed by CCD classes at 9:30am. The breakfast is for the children and their families to live the Catholic faith through fellowship and love of God with the parish community.

Dr. Cheryl White,  Director of Religious Education

The Mission of CCD

Our mission is to assist parents in forming their children into disciples who know and love Jesus Christ and are active members of their Parish family.  We are here to support parents in walking closely with their children as they grow in knowledge and practice of the Catholic faith. We assist parents in forming a new generation of young Catholics who know and love Jesus Christ and live the Catholic faith as His disciples in the community of the Catholic Church.

We strive to instill in our CCD families a deeper union with Christ through encouraging regular attendance at Mass and reception of the Sacraments.
